Mortal Kombat 1 continues to bring you very bloody battles that promise to keep you fighting for a long time.
Mortal Kombat has been and is one of the special fighting game brands compared to other games of the same genre. It’s possible that the games in this franchise don’t have gameplay that has as many technical features as Street Fighter or Tekken.
However, the game still has a certain position thanks to its unique character system and attractive storyline. However, after 30 years, NetherRealm has decided to soft reboot the IP with Mortal Kombat 1 to give them better control over the plot.
The plot of Mortal Kombat 1 takes place immediately after the events of MK11 Aftermath, at which point Liu Kang not only becomes a powerful god but he himself is also a Titan, a Keeper of Time so he has the ability to rebuilding the entire world of Mortal Kombat in the direction he wanted. With his kind heart, he tried to give the characters in previous games a better life, thereby making the characters familiar with the world. Each part of the game has a different development direction than the previous parts. Typically we can see that Bi-Han is no longer Noob Saibot but he is still an arrogant Sub Zero. Raiden is no longer a god of thunder but simply a farmer with martial arts talent. And of course in this world there are still Mortal Kombat tournaments, but instead of fighting to the death to conquer worlds, this is more like a martial arts and cultural exchange tournament. But things never go exactly the way an entity wants, even if it is a powerful fire god. In the darkness, hostile forces hatch plots to destroy peace. average and this time the conspiracy has a multiverse scale.
As for the plot, after increasing the scale of the tournament, many gamers and fans felt extremely excited, but when they started playing immediately they would be a bit disappointed because of the number of characters. Participating in this part (only counting the original) are all familiar characters, but the number is a bit small. However, because the game’s plot has taken a new direction, each character brings a new feeling, even the characters whose plot has not changed too much have many elements added. New gameplay elements for fans to freely explore. Typically here we can talk about Reptile, although his appearance is still that of a Ninja with the ability to spray Acid and hide, his fighting style is based on switching between two forms: reptilian and human. thereby creating many new combination directions. When entering the match, MK 1 also has extremely valuable improvements, the feature that I am most excited about is none other than aerial combos. These aerial combos not only make the match look better and faster than previous parts, but also help gamers with good timing ability to perform a series of combos with extremely terrible damage. giving them the ability to overturn the entire match in decisive moments. However, when it comes to Mortal Kombat games, besides two things: good storylines, unique characters and easy-to-learn gameplay, there is one thing that can be considered a symbol of this entire game series: the finishing moves. Fatalities. Under the power of modern technology, these finishing moves become more and more realistic and brutal, even when combined with carefully invested SFX effects, giving goosebumps every time you witness attacks like this. , your duck skin will appear. Besides those changes, there is another feature that also makes gamers feel equally excited: the appearance of Kameo characters playing a support role for the main players. This mechanism works quite simply. Once you have created your own player, you will be taken to another character selection screen where you will choose a Kameo character, these characters are quite interesting. Some may be some variation of the main fighters, some may be characters that have appeared in other games. Once you have chosen the desired character, you will have 3 more moves to perform. This makes it possible to extend combo chains, counterattack enemies or help you become more mobile. Of course, these characters are not without limits. These characters will have a cooldown bar to prevent players from abusing these characters, causing the game to become unbalanced, so you must think carefully before choosing. make a usage decision to bring the most optimal effectiveness. It must be said that Mortal Kombat 1 is invested very carefully in the voice acting, from the fighters to the Kameo characters, all expressing their personality in every word. If you are a movie fan, you will realize that There are many sayings of the characters that originate from blockbuster movies of the past.
After completing the story part of the game (I personally only rate this part as quite good), you can go to the online arena with ranked, casual, private rooms or King Of The modes. Hill, all of these modes work extremely well. This is probably because the studio organized many years of stress testing for Mortal Kombat 1’s server before the game was released, so I had almost no problems related to it. network while playing. The single-player parts are also quite diverse, but I personally feel that they still lack a bit of depth in the gameplay. Basically, I feel extremely satisfied with what the game Mortal Kombat 1 brings, including image (except for playing on the switch) and sound. Rumor has it that there will be an additional story game developed in the form of DLC for this game and I hope that the game studio will maintain the current quality of game development.
